This is a delicious recipe that can't get any easier to make and is hugely welcomed by kids. I always add chopped walnuts since my family loves the nutty feeling.

My Favorite!

YUM!! The minute I saw these last year, I knew I had to try them! Since then, I've made them for every holiday party (they're especially pretty with the alternate colored holiday decoratives on the dough at each special time of year) and often just to have around the house. The recipe couldn't be easier (I do bake 30 minutes so that the brownies finish setting, though) and it's an extremely fun treat to whip up! A++ for presentation, taste, and ease of preparation!

This idea was ingenious!...and delicious! My grandsons, granddaughter, and I made the checkerboard, then played checkers on it with Smarties before we ate it. It was loads of fun, and there was no game to put away when we were finished. Thank you!!!
